Cardboard Puppet Theater
Activity DesignerChildhood 101
Puppet shows are a wonderful way to extend a child's communication skills. As children assume different voices and take on the different personas of the puppets, they are experimenting with language without even realizing it. With puppets, children often play out what they have seen, heard and learned, reinforcing their knowledge of the world around them. Their imagination is also put to good use as they make up stories to share.
